BMW has been named the #3 brand in the Ranking the Brands Top 100 brands rank list. This puts it as the top ranked automotive brand, behind only Apple and Google's brand.

The closest automotive brand is Mercedes-Benz at #8 and Audi at #11. From the rank list it appears that the last time the list was compiled, BMW was ranked behind Mercedes. The increase in BMW's brand prestige/equity is undoubtedly attributable to BMW's continued position as the top luxury-sporty car maker, record sales this year, larger offering of models, and an increased emphasis on marketing/advertising.

Ranking The Brands listing is a top brands list based on a collection of brand rankings published worldwide and the top 100 ranking is compiled on the basis of all the rankings included in Rankingthebrands.com. The position of a brand in this list is determined by the number of rankings in which it appears, and takes into account its position in each ranking.

This may be great for BMW and its shareholders, but it doesn't mean much for enthusiasts or those who care at all about driving.

In the last couple of years BMW has been producing cars that are less focused on driving and more on technology and luxury. I understand this is a business and the objective is to maximize profitability (which they've been doing quite well because of Asia), but they're becoming more like Lexus and Mercedes, and losing their competitive advantage - driving dynamics. I know it might be some time from now, but I hope this strategy really bites them in the butt, when BMW completely loses its "cool" and "ultimate driving machine" factor, and no longer have the support from automotive journalists.

When I was younger I remember thinking to myself that I must drive a BMW, because it was relatively economical, a superior drivers car, and many of the features were different. Now, it's just on the same boat as everyone else. I know their strategy is to fill the Asian and Gen-Y market (who probably cares less about driving and more on technology), but it's very disappointing to witness the transition.

Without any bias, Apple is the best company and brand in the world. It's absolutely incredible what they've accomplished in the last several years, during an economic recession and catastrophe. Almost everything they do, from a business standpoint, is executed perfectly.

Word, as much as one may dislike them... they have an impeccable business model. Good for BMW though.

I don't agree on BMW loosing its edge; I've been driving BMWs for 19 years now (and once worked AT BMW), and I reckon BMWs are now much better cars than 10 years ago in terms of quality et al. You really must see how BMWs are manufactured and engineered to fully understand why these are superior cars, far better than any other brand. Take the word from a guy who used to be involved in the car business.

Apple #1?

sad world. if it wasn't for the iPwned series. I do admire their business strategy though. Until they f**ked up the lawsuit with Samsung.

-Apple is so high on the list because so many dumb-ass parents buy iPhones for their kids.
(bless their hearts, so spoiled now, they will live at home until they are 30)

-Google is so high on the list because people like me love them for giving away so much for free!

I'm not surprise Apple is number one and BMW is 3rd. Look at how many people using it.
